We stopped at Lightsey's today for lunch. We're from West Palm Beach, but whenever we go to Okeechobee we usually stop at Lightsey's. A friend told us they were under new management. When we walked in we saw about 4 tables of people eating inside, and about 5 tables full of dirty dishes and half eaten food. There were 2 servers and another girl who seemed to be seating people and starting to clean off tables. We were told to sit for a few minutes while a table was cleaned up. Well, finally one was cleaned up, but the messes remained all around us. Other people came in to eat, though many came, looked around, and left. The poor servers had their hands full. There was no busboy, no cart to help them clean up. No owner in sight. We had the catfish and it was great, all the food was excellent. No complaints there. You could see the servers were pushed to their limits. I guess they didn't expect such a crowd today, but it is Christmas week, with lots of out of towners visiting. I felt like getting up and helping them myself!
